Fun Summer Dresses to Live it Up in the City

Last Friday was my only day off, my one day without a major deadline. So, I decided to throw on one of my fun summer dresses and enjoy the day out in the city. Since I had made poor food choices all week, my first stop was the Juice Bar in Rock Hill. I simply needed to remind my body what good food tastes like.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress (alternative style) | Sandals c/o (also seen here) | Tote | Mac “Heroine” lipstick

First on the menu? A wheatgrass shot, of course!

While I decided on what I wanted to eat, I couldn’t resist one of the new summertime smoothies. This Mo-Mint in the Sun smoothie caught my attention because it was made with dragonfruit. It also coordinated well with my dress. By the way, how gorgeous is the multicolor print on this dress? It comes in two dress styles–the ruffled style I’m wearing (shop it here) and this knot-front style. The print is also available on a top (see it here).

Here’s the limited Mo-Mint in the Sun smoothie available at the Juice Bar at Rock Hill.

I finally decided on the raw spring rolls.

The gluten-free peanut sauce that accompanies these rolls is the tastiest ever.

Disclosure: Thank you to the Juice Bar Rock in Rock Hill for hosting my visit!

Wear Your White Jeans Without Worry this Summer

Listen. My white jeans work overtime during the summer. From holding down a casual all-white party ensemble to cinching together my picnic styles, my white denim stays on repeat. Need proof? You must see these 12 Stylish Ways to Wear White Jeans Right Now.

After publishing that post, I heard concerns from an overwhelming number of you. “I’m afraid to wear white jeans to a party because they attract stains,” said one woman. “I don’t feel comfortable sitting anywhere in my white jeans,” said another. “How do you keep your white jeans clean, Psyche?” you asked.

My answer to that question might surprise you. I simply don’t sweat it. I live my life in my white jeans–I party outside, and I sit down in them. And, when they get dirty or stained, which they often do, I stay calm. Stains come out. Usually.

6 Exciting Discoveries Halfway Through the Year

Well, we’re 6 months into 2018, and I’ve been plying away as usual. I figured I’d take a pause for a minute and reflect on 6 exciting discoveries or new activities I’ve made so far.

1. Bike-sharing

Bike-sharing finally rolled into St. Louis in April this year. I quickly became a fan of Lime Bike because I enjoy the freedom to ride a bike whenever I want without the commitment of owning one.

2. Co-working spaces

I’ve been curious about co-working spaces because I sometimes miss the community of an office space. Exploring Spaces (see more here) was a great experience. It’s good to know I have access to that kind of community at will.

3. Recommitment to color

Spring 2018 has reignited my love of color and vibrant prints. Yass! See my brightest favorites here.

4. The power of DNA

I gained important insights about my skin when I did a DNA skin care analysis last year (more on that here). When I learned, then, about a DNA healthy weight analysis, I got in on that too.

5. Minimal fine jewelry

Since cutting my hair last year, I’ve been slowly phasing out statement jewelry from my collection. Shocking, right? I’ve been replacing those pieces with minimal fine jewelry that stands out in its own way. See my current favorites and where to get them here.

6. The joys of phototoshoots with mom

A couple years ago, I needed a photograph of my mom and me. I was disappointed that I didn’t have a recent one. So, every time I travel home, I plan to take photos of and with my mom. See our last shoot here, then read the important style lessons I learned from my mom here.

What exciting discoveries have you made during the first half of 2018?
